Sherese Francis

Project Title: Art/I/Fact

Project Description: Sherese Francis excavates various etymologies, histories and myths, in the search for community stories that have been buried due to misinformation, stereotypes, cultural amnesia and social oppressions. The Southeast Queens-based poet and artist recycles found materials to create a unique, sacred, and collective text. For her project Art/I/Fact, Francis will research collective memory in Jamaica by hosting a series of participatory public workshops and collecting photographs of and historical/informational texts to create time-capsule-inspired collages.

How to Participate:
Sherese would like to invite other members of the Southeast Queens community to be a part of the project by sending words, memories and pictures related to these spaces or by making suggestions of other places to be part of these collages. Please share via this survey link below. For more information, contact Sherese at
